The Oakwoods Nature Preserve East is located in a former agricultural field. The 65 acre area has been primarily converted into wetlands and a small portion will be planted as a native prairie. The project includes restoring natural water flow to the landscape and capturing excess nutrient and sediment from nearby farmland. This is a component of a larger restoration at Hancock Park District’s Oakwoods Nature Preserve.
